Income or loss from investments fluctuates from year to year; between 1998––08, the highest income was .7 billion in 2006-07 and the greatest loss was .5 billion in 2007-08.As of October 2008, Cal PERS had a total of 6.7 billion in assets invested as follows: 4.9 billion (56.2%) in equities, .0 billion (21.9%) in fixed income, .9 billion (11.2%) in real estate, .2 billion (8.7%) in cash equivalents, and .7 billion (2.0%) in inflation linked assets.Discussion about providing for the retirement of California state employees began in 1921, but only in 1930 did California voters approve an amendment to the State Constitution to allow pensions to be paid to state workers, and only in 1931 was state law passed to establish a state worker retirement plan. Public employee unions responded by seeking an amendment to the Constitution of California that would guarantee the board’s independence, remove the fund’s duty to minimize contributions or administrative costs, and require the provision of benefits to “take precedence over any other duty.” When Board member Phil Angelides’ aide questioned whether the stock market could grow that long, Board Chairman William Crist, a former union president, replied that they “could make all sorts of different assumptions and make predictions, but that’s really more than I think we can expect our staff to do.” Cal PERS then produced a video promoting the legislation with Chairman Crist promising greater benefits “without imposing any additional cost on the taxpayers” and the California State Employees Association president praising it as “the biggest thing since sliced bread”. Investment Income has fluctuated in the last 15 years, 1999–2013, with five years of losses and 10 years of gains.Blackstone Group LP announced in November 2015 that it would acquire 43 international and domestic real estate funds from Cal PERS for billion. There were investment income gains of billion in 1999, billion in 2000 and five billion dollars in 2003.In 1994, Nesbitt published a study that found that companies on the Focus List trailed the S&P 500 prior to being put on the list, but outperformed the S&P 500 after being put on the list, and named this phenomenon the "Cal PERS effect".
